To convert kilograms (kg) to pounds (lbs), you can use the following step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Understand the conversion factor

1 kilogram (kg) is equal to 2.20462 pounds (lbs). This means that to convert kg to lbs, you need to multiply the weight in kg by 2.20462.

Step 2: Set up the conversion equation

Let’s denote the weight in kg as W_kg and the weight in lbs as W_lbs. The conversion equation is:

W_lbs = W_kg * 2.20462

Step 3: Plug in the given weight in kg

In this case, the given weight is 22.5 kg. So, we substitute W_kg = 22.5 into the equation:

W_lbs = 22.5 * 2.20462

Step 4: Calculate the conversion

Using a calculator or performing the multiplication manually, we find:

W_lbs = 49.60455

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)

Since weight is typically rounded to the nearest whole number, we can round 49.60455 to the nearest pound, which is 50 lbs.

Therefore, 22.5 kg is approximately equal to 50 lbs.
